Naomi & De Poel

Fiddler Naomi Vercauteren invites Jeroen Knapen (guitar) and Bart Vervaeck (banjo) to perform an anthology of their favorite repertoire. Especially for the online edition of Fiddlers on the Move, they make up this ensemble, knowing one another as teachers at the music academy De Poel in Ghent. In this unique line-up they play a nice blend of their own compositions, local traditional tunes and Irish music.
